keep the gen 1 head, use the .045-.050 hg only, where ever u have to find it. u need to tighten quench up to .026-.028, it's important. deck .015-.020 i pay $40 for decking. good cnc full radius vj with increase power 3-4% thru increased flow and the ports can easily be improved. if u want a decent running bike, do the 08 race cam, settle for what hg is easily availabe, leave the head alone. for your stated purpose, set the quench tight, deck .020, match int. manifolds, match valve seat inserts to port, clean up, bowl port, and retexture ports, cnc vj. this is the diff. between decent and fast, within your 1k budget, if u can reassemble. lmk if i can help.
